Our objectives for 2017 and a short review of 2016

A very eventful and successful year is coming to an end. 2016 was for the European Wilderness Society a year in which we:

The New Year will begin with just as much fervour as the old ones ends.

  • In January we will assist our Partner EcoPlay in the Ukraine in an Climate Change Education and Tourist Trail project financed by the Australian Embassy to the Ukraine.
  • Also in January we will mail the Deforestation report to our 1000+ friends supporting us.
  • In addition, we will publish the Quick-Audit reports for:
    • Königsbrücker Heide Wilderness
    • Gorgany Wilderness
    • Uholka Wilderness
    • Homul Wilderness
    • European Wilderness Quality Standard.
  • In addition in February we will mail the detailed Wilderness Audit Report from NP Kalkalpen to our 1000+ Supporters to give them an idea of what the European Wilderness Quality Standard and Audit Report entails.
  • We will also publish our Annual Report 2016 and the next issue of our European Wilderness Journal.
  • In March we will start with our WildARTS programme in cooperation with Machaon Foundation.
  • In April we will visit several new EWQA Candidates who want to be audited to join the European Wilderness Network.

  • Shortly before Christmas our new series of Wilderness Publications will be published and made available to all our wilderness advocates..
  • and last but not least we will submit in 2017 our pledge for a European Wilderness Act.
